KIND READER, accept this volume in 
the same spirit in which it is given : 
neither as censor nor as sponsor. 
A mirror of student life in the college 
days of '99, reflecting their joys and 
sorrows, their romance and realism. 
And when those days have slipped away, 
may this volume be a token of remem- 
brance which will serve to recall the 
glees and friendships, the rivalries, de- 
feats and triumphs under the canopy of 
the oaks. <£<£jt<£j*j*<j*j*j*

The contest for the year i897-'9S will be held at Evanston, March 6th. 

Central Debating Ceague 

Northwestern University, the University of Michigan, Chicago University, and the Uni- 
versity of Minnesota compose the Central Debating League. The purpose of this organization 
is the development of ready speakers and skilled debaters through a public discussion of 
leading questions of the day. 

The universities named are arranged in two groups for the semi- final debates. The final 
contest in each year takes place in the Auditorium at Chicago on the first Friday in April, at 
which time the debate is between the winners from the groups. 

During the year i897-'98, the contest between Northwestern University and the Uni- 
versity of Minnesota will not occur, because the latter university, taking the place of the 
University of Wisconsin in the league, entered too late to allow arrangements to be made 
for the current year.

The University Guild is an association of women, organized at Evanston in June, 1892, 
with the object of advancing the interests of Northwestern University by personal aid and 
effort, and of enlisting others in plans to promote its welfare. 

The special work of the Guild is to secure an art collection for the University and the 
ultimate erection of an Art and Museum Building. The collection already secured is of great 
interest, and is valued at several thousand dollars. It consists chiefly of choice specimens of 
potter}-, porcelain and art glass, with small collections of pictures and casts. 

The Uniyersity Guild occupies rooms handsomely fitted up in the Orrington Lunt 
Library, where its social and other meetings are held, and where its collections are at present 

The Guild rooms are open to students and the public on Wednesday afternoons.

northwestern University Settlement 

The settlement is conducted by the Northwestern University Settlement Association, in 
co-operation with the residents at the settlement and non-resident helpers.

Mr. William Deering -------- First Vice President

HE purpose of the university settlement is to offer to university people and others 

interested in social progress the opportunity of residence among the very poor 
and facilities for helping them socially, educationally and spiritually. Sharing 
the life of the poor is the fundamental idea of the settlement. Northwestern 
University Settlement was the second settlement begun in Chicago and the first 
to be started there under university auspices. It offers also an excellent opportunity for prac- 
tical acquaintance with sociological problems in the heart of a great city. The co-operation 
of students, alumni and members of the university faculties is especially valued in the work 
of the settlement, while no one is excluded from the ranks of its helpers. 

It is in the Sixteenth Ward, the most densely populated ward in Chicago, and occupies a 
large house at 252 West Chicago avenue and the first floors of three other buildings. It has 
ten resident workers and nearl)- fifty helpers who come once each week or oftener to assist in 
its various lines of work. 

The present work of the settlement includes boys' clubs, children's clubs, a working girls' 
club, a woman's club, a neighborhood social evening club, a mending guild, sewing classes, 
dressmaking class, lace-making class, a kitchen garden, a kindergarten, a penny savings bank, 
a circulating library, a circulating picture gallery, a coffee house and a model playground. It 
conducts also choral classes, an art class and classes in English, elocution, French and other 
subjects. The Social Crusade has its headquarters at the settlement, and conducts a Sunday 
service there and many other services in the vicinity. The residents also co-operate with the 
district bureaus of charity in relief for the needy and in friendly visiting. 

More than one thousand people visit the settlement each week and share in its social and 
educational opportunities. 

The work is maintained by membership fees in the settlement association and by voluntary 
subscriptions. Full information in regard to the settlement will be found in the annual circu- 
lars, which may be obtained by addressing the secretary.

We have been delightfully enter- 
tained by the fireside articles which 
have appeared weekly in the North- 
western under the caption, ' The Man 
on the Campus" One of our "very 
best students" informs us that the 
articles bear marks of a feminine 
pen, and thai there is undoubtedly a 
hidden key, which, briefly stated, is: 
Select as many letters as you need 
from the forty-fifth article of the 
tenth series and you have plainly, 
"May Peterson writes The Man on 
the Campus.' " 

We take this opportunitv of making 
a few congratulatory remarks upon 
the manner in which Miss Peterson 
has told of her experiences upon our 
beautiful campus. We believe from 
the tone of the articles that Miss 
Peterson loves the campus. We can 
see no harm in this, providing Dr. 
Rogers is not loving the campus at 
the same time. Just why she has 
sacrificed "realism" for "ethereal- 
ism" in these articles is not clear. 
We believe, as do many of "our very 
best students," that Miss Peterson's 
love for the campus, treated realistic- 
ally and with that inimitable badin- 
age and persiflage would have been 
vastly more amusing and entertain- 
ing than the condition of the lake 
after the leaves have "gently flut- 
tered," or the "gleaming snow has 
crystalined the clock in the tower 
with its glittering marble mantle of 
snow)' snow." Although Miss Peter- 
sou may not have treated the campus 
according to our ideas, yet we feel that 
she shows latent ability which is de- 
veloping with practice. We also call 
her attention to the delicate compli- 
ment paid her by the editor in giving 

space with such regularity. We 
pray that she may live to complete 
the series. 

We were inexpressibly grieved last 
semester to learn that a majority of 
our "very best students" had done 
"unsatisfactory work." We are at a 
loss to account for such a deplorable 
condition in "our midst." 

One of our "assistant best students" 
attributes the "C" disease tothe bril- 
liant society life and the exhausting 
social dissipation found at North- 
western "It is plain that our sorori- 
ties and fraternities are degenerat- 
ing," he said. At this statement we 
sat aghast. Complaintsand captious 
criticism upon our co-eds' dress and 
manners we can bear, but under such 
language our editorial collar chafed 
our alabaster throat, and we did not 
hesitate to talk to him real plainly. 
"No, sir! sir! " we reiterated in stento- 
rian tones. "Northwestern's maidens 
are the fairest, and her men are the 
bravest the sun sets on." 

We cannot entertain any such 
thought, but to obviate the evil this 
semester, we offer as a suggestion 
that the faculticulus, represented by 
Samuel Debenhatn Gloss and J. Stitt 
Wilson call upon our students just 
before the "exes " and offer their 
personal aid and inspiration. 

We were much interested last se- 
mester in Professor Hough's an- 
nouncement that he had discovered 
a new comet sweeping across our 
uortheru horizon at the rate of 75,000 
miles a second, and attended by a 
fiery train of nebulae. With all due 
respect to Professor Hough's age and 
experience, we nevertheless believe 
that the eminent astronomer is mis- 
taken, and that what he took for a 
comet was in reality Professor James 
Taft Hatfield out on a constitutional. 

The similarity between heavenly 
bodies is striking, and the fiery train 
of nebuhciseasilyaccountedforby the 
fact that the lake zephyrs sometimes 
are bold enough to sport with the 
professor's whiskers and, when such 
high speed is generated, a tremulous 
motion naturally permeates his hir- 
sute appendices. 

In vain we have sought for the 
reason why the Pan-Hellenic Associa- 
tion closed its doors and blew out its 
lights at 12 o'clock. 

This brilliant social function, com- 
posed as it was of ' our very best and 
assistant best students," we were in- 
formed would close when it "got 
ready." Divers announcements that 
there would be "dancing after :2" 
cheered our drooping spirits. 

It is rumored that one of the fac- 
ulticulus was present, and, in defer- 
ence to his habit of retiring early, the 
affair was closed at 12. 

Once more we are called upon to 
congratulate our enterprising fellow 
student, Irwin J. Hall, in his recent 
call to the sporting editorship of the 
War Cry. We feel that Mr. Hall's 
talents have won deserved recogni- 

How eagerly we grasp this oppor- 
tunity to thank our Alma Mater for 
placing "among us" that jewel, 
William Cuba Bryan. We feel that Mr. 
Bryan's wide experience in matters 
which we will not mention here, 
pre-eminently fits him for a student's 
guide, counselor and friend. Doubt- 
less Mr. Bryan's work at North- 
western will be seen fifty years

Those two stars are all I care for 

E'en though night brings forth no more. 
Night brings forth stars.

Dean miller $ term Lecture 

Cable Etiquette 


WILL preface^ my reniaiks [this 'afternoon, young ladies, by telling you that the 
object of table etiquette is to teach one how to refrain from eating and show your 
good breeding. 

The usual order of meals in America is breakfast in the morning, lunch at 
noon, supper in the evening. 

You should not seat yourselves, young ladies, until your elders sit down. 
It would be far better that you stand during the entire meal than to be seated 
the least bit^before your seniors. 

In drinking, the eyes should be fixed on the ceiling, with the thumb and 
second finger on the glass and the little finger curled from the second joint at 
an angle of 95 degrees. Never leave the spoon in the cup; even if the house is on fire it should 
be carefully removed before flight is made. At dinner, if you happen to have soup for the first 
course, insert the spoon horizontally, move it from you vertically, then raise steadily until its 
northeast corner touches the outer edge of the facial aperture. 

Bread should be broken over the plate, not over the knee. 

If any food is served which you do not desire, toy with it for a time and at the first 

opportunity slip it quietly up your sleeve or into your pocket, thereby deceiving your hostess. 

With this exception no food should be carried away from the table in concealment for future use. 

The hostess should have a sharp prod handy in order that she may keep the guests in the 

proper position at the table. 

If toadstools or strychnine are served, devour with a sweet smile and ask for more. 
It is exceedingly good form, young ladies, to consume a few pieces of soap, hairs, etc., 
that have strayed into the food, and all the time look pleasant. 

Now, I think that with a little practice you will find no difficulty in 
carrying out these few directions. The omission or non-compliance with 
any of these instructions will at once mark you as ill-bred. Now, are there 
any questions ? 

Should young ladies be on time to their meals ? 

Well, yes; still, haste is vulgar at all times, and young ladies should 
never run downstairs buttoning their shoes. Far better be late. 

If there are no more questions now, I will excuse the young ladies. 


Interviews with tbe faculty on tbe Cbapel Cboir 

Bonhright — "My inability to elucidate an opinion is based upon the fact that I never 
attend chapel. Very funny, isn't it? " 

Hair n — " The choir lacks a certain element of musical dexterity." 

Caldwell — "A mere conformity to the principle that all should be drunk with music." 

Clark — " The choir is like the man who knew only two tunes. One was 'Old Hundred' 
and the other wasn't. He usually sang the one that wasn't." 

CoE — " The philosophical spirit alone enables me to endure the incongruous phenomena by 
it accomplished." 

Crew — " I should prefer to leave the solution of the matter for future experiment. It is 
too crude. " 

Miss Freeman — "I wish I knew some Scotch swear words " 

HaTi'IELD — " The most conspicuous exponent of the noble science of harmonic concatena- 
tion, the recherche eraipia of the expurgated musical talent of the university, executed 
through the stick-to-it-ive mental process of the illustrious ego." 

HolgaTE — " My feelings cannot be bounded by the cotangent of the horizon." 

LrTKiN — " I don't go to chapel; I respect my ears." 

LE Daim — " I am dumb." 

Marcv — "Eh ! What ? Oh, I never heard of such a thing." 

White — "Their most finished production does not equal in completeness the cotangent of 
the arc X."

ROF. CLARK has said more times than one 
There's nothing new beneath the sun; 
But if he doubts the truth of what " they say, 
Just find a man who's passed in " Eng. A." 

Prof. Hatfield's jokes sint immer new, 
But you'll find there's one on you. 
Ach, Himmel! pray your name's no pun, 
For if it is your trouble's begun. 

Prof. Cumnock's classes, do not shun 
But learn to say your "one, one, one," 
And soon or late you'll find, mayhap, 
That this is your only two-hour "snap "

Prize Poem 

By B. Byron Bobb. 

In the dell, when the bobolinks cheerily call, 
Where the brooklet is spicy with cresses, 

Slowly saunters fair Elsie, caressingly fall 
Like sunshine her unconfined tresses. 

But ever the zephyrs them airily lift, 

Her lily-white shoulders revealing; 
Loosely gathered, her garment, with folds let adrift, 

Is but half her soft bosom concealing. 

When she enters the nook where the violets grow 

The bluest 'mid greenest of grasses, 
From the lips of the whispering flowerets flow 

These low, mellow notes as she passes: 

"Hail, Oueen of the Violets, beauteous maid! 

We, joining with gallant hearts eases, 
In minuets gracefully sway on the glade 
To the melodies born of the breezes. 
We thee to praise 
Our faces raise 
As blue as the sky high o'er us, 
And nod and smile, 
And all the while 
We sing our joyful chorus. 

" In purity grew we thy bosom to deck; 

Come pluck us, receive back thy graces. 
From thy head get we modesty, grace from thy neck, 
From thy beauty, the charm of our faces. 
Our fragrance we 
Give back to thee, 
To thy breath belongs this treasure. 
And we restore 
( 'Twas there before ) 
To thine eyes our liquid azure."

class men than- 

,HE professor let his lank form slide down into my one rocking chair and 
crossed his legs. His face was paler than usual, and at short intervals 
he coughed — deep, rattling coughs. 

"You don't look well, professor, " I observed. "What is the matter?" 
He shot a quick glance at me, then assumed a sly expression. 
"It is nothing," he replied. "By the way, I should like to discuss 
a little matter which concerns your Syllabus. To my mind, a college 
organ should do more to encourage literary effort among the under- 
lie was interrupted by another sepulchral attack. 
"Won't you take some quinine, professor?" I said, 
knowing how prone he was to neglect himself. 
"That cough is too serious a matter to be treated 

"Will you kindly drop the matter?" He spoke 
so sharply that I was taken aback and could only 

" I beg your pardon." 

"Very well. As I was saying, it seems to me 

that " There was another fit of coughing, this 

time lasting so long that I was alarmed. It seemed 
hardly proper to pound a professor on the back, so I 
looked at him helplessly. Finally I said: 
" How did you get such a cold?" 
To my astonishment the professor rose to his feet 
and fairly glared down at me. 

"You will oblige me by refraining from cheap 
witticisms," he said angrily. 

This startled me so that I rose, too. 
" Really, professor," I began, "I fail to see how 
I have — " 

"Oh, nevermind, never mi 
"I forgot myself. Come to think, of course you 
couldn't have known. To be frank, lam a bit sensitive 
on the subject." Then, drawing his chin into his col- 
lar, he added: "I perceive that I owe you an apology." 
This was a puzzle. 

"You certainly are mysterious," I said, trying to 
speak lightly, for there was still the shadow of a cloud about his eyes. 

He sat down again and began to rub his spectacles with his handkerchief. 
" I suppose I may as well tell you,"— he spoke in an absent manner— "but of course you 
will understand that it is confidential." 
I bowed. 

"Well, co-education is the cause of this cold." 
I must have looked surprised, for he went on more quickly. 
"Yes, sir, co-education. I'll tell you, this herding of young men and women together in 


an indiscriminate mass never yet made either a good 
scholar or a stalwart man. " 

"You don't have it in England ?" I asked. 
"No, sir, we have always fought it. You see, it 
'/ cheapens in either sex the proper appreciation of the 
'other; and it is thoroughly antagonistic to that deep 
loyalty which makes the memory of college days so 
dear to the alumnus. I tell you, what we need here 
is more of the clan spirit; more of that love for alma mater which involuntarily doubles up a 
man's fist in her defense; more of the — the — er, where was I ?" 

"The cold," I suggested. 

"Yes, yes. And that reminds me. Do you know, our gymnasium would be a disgrace 
to a christian science sanatarium. It is so old and draughty that the wind blows right through 
it. It is not properly kept up. The apparatus is old and out of repair, and the baths are all 
out of order. Really, I am astounded that the directors do not take some action." 

"Surely it is enough to give one a cold," I said, for want of something better. 

" Yes," he replied, "as I was about to tell you. You will remember that yesterday was 
raw and windy. I spent the morning in the city; in consequence I reached home at noon with 
Chicago dust and grime ground deeply into the exposed portions of my body. As I had no 
work after lunch until the four o'clock class, I decided to go down early in the afternoon and 
take a shower bath." 

" At the gymnasium ?" I asked. 


" Why, yesterday was ladies' day." 

He gave me another sharp look. 

"So I discovered," he said drily. " I reached the gymnasium at about two o'clock. As 
the lake wind was keen, I decided to hurry a little. I went into the farther dressing room — 
at the extreme east end of the building — undressed, and for fear of sneak thieves, placed all 
my clothes in an empty locker and closed the door. Then I took my towel and went back 
through the other dressing room to the baths. As I had seen no one when I entered, I natur- 
ally inferred that I was the only occupant of the building. I found that one of the two shower 
baths was badly out of order. The connections were so imperfect that only cold water 
responded when I turned the cock. The other was somewhat better. Apparently there was 
plenty of hot water, so I went in and closed the door, fastening the catch. You will remember 
that the doors extend but a little higher than a man's head, and that the lower end is cut off 
five or six inches from the tiling. I took particular notice of this lower opening, for a cold 
draught continually played about my feet." 

The professor paused and held his spectacles up to the light, then placed them upon his nose. 

"Yes," he continued, "it was very cold. But to go on. I finished my bath, but delayed 
for a moment to turn off the water. I found that I could not prevent a steady dribble from 
the shower, which was unfortunate, for in a short time, of course, the hot water would all run 
out of the boiler, and those who wished to bathe later in the day would be compelled to use 
the cold. I pulled at the faucet for several minutes but was unable to stop the drip. Pausing 
for breath, I was startled by the unmistakable voice of a woman — a young woman. While 
she was speaking she went into the dressing room next to the baths. She was followed by 
dozens of others, for in a few moments the two rooms were filled with silly, giggling girls. 
At first I hoped that they would see my clothes and take the hint, but then I remembered that 
everything I had was hidden in a locker. For one rash instant I was tempted to call out and 
frighten them away, but second thoughts were more moderate. As their numbers increased 
they began to fill the bath room, and then I was seized with the fear that my feet were visible. 
I crowded as far back against the rear wall as I could, and placed my feet in the corners; but 


even then I knew that the girls could see the tell-tale members by stooping a little. You will 
remember that there are small metal strips at the rear of the side walls, a few inches from the 
bottom. I tried resting my feet upon those, in a posture suggestive of the Colossus of Rhodes, 
but that made it necessary to hold on at the top with both hands in plain sight. At last, in 
despair, I wrapped the towel around my feet and stood back against the rear wall very straight. 
At least, they could see nothing worse than the towel. Then the inevitable occured. The 
steady drip from the circular shower above me began to turn cold. It grew worse and worse, 
until I seemed to stand in a drizzle of iced water. Yes, it was very cold." 

He stopped and gazed at the ceiling with a far-away look. 

" How did you get out ?" I asked, after a long pause. 

"That," he replied, "that was the worst part of it. I stood there without moving until I 
thought that I should never be able to move again. Girls came and went. A troop of them 
went upstairs and seemed to go through some drill, to judge from the regular tramp on the 
floor above. There were times when all about the bath room was still, but I could not venture 
out because it was impossible to know how soon they would return. At last, however, when 
I was all but frozen, they all returned and seemed to be dressing. Now, while they were 
upstairs it had been comparatively easy for me to stand motionless, but the minute they 
re-entered the rooms I seemed to be afflicted with St. Vitus' dance. I slipped and slopped 
about on the tiling until I was in an agony of fear. Then, too, the long exposure to the cold 
air and water had its effect, and I knew that I had taken cold. I could feel a tickling and 
looseness in my throat. At last I was siezed with an overmastering desire to sneeze. I tried 
every method I could think of to prevent it. I drew deep breaths, I pressed my upper lip, 
I held my nose, I drank half a pint of the falling water, but it was of no avail. I made one 
final effort and then sneezed. And I continued to sneeze until I feared that I never should stop. 
The girls shrieked and screamed and scampered until the uproar was appalling. But at last 
the sounds of the panic died away in the distance, and I stole out, and, wet as I was, slipped 
into my clothes; for the towel was wetter than I. I tiptoed to the door, let myself out, and 
slipped around to the beach. Then, as well as my stiffened muscles permitted, I sauntered 
toward the life saving station. On the way I met a group of the girls huddled together by 
the breakwater. I knew them by their frightened faces." 

" Did you get to your recitation?" I asked. 

" No," he replied, the savage gleam returning to his eyes. " As I reached Sheridan road 
the university clock struck five. 

And then the professor fell into such a hard fit of coughing that I had to help him to his 
room .

Prize 8-line Poem. 

By Helen Arthur, 'oi. 

" What shall you give up for Lent? ' 
Her eyes are toward me bent. 

" It must be what you like the best, 
She said, but not in idle jest. 

" Shall it be that ? " I quickly ask. 
" Alas! a hard and dreary task! 

At least I'm sure I'd find it so — 
I'd have to give up you, I know." 


Old northwestern 

By Harry T. Parsons. 

Wasn't it pleasant, O chum of mine, 
In those old days of our youth's sunshine 
At college — when Friday's tasks were through, 
And Monday's work in general, too, 
And we went calling, " me and you," 
At Old Northwestern ? 

It all comes back like a dream today, 
Though time grows old, and we are gray — 
With scarlet tie, pointed shoes and cane, 
We saunter off to the " Sem " again, 
As gay as the sunbeams after rain, 
At Old Northwestern. 

1 60 

We cross the campus, and stop to look 
At that century oak with its famous crook. 
Which has watched the coming and going, too, 
And heard the troths of the lovers true 
As they passed each day to class review 
At Old Northwestern. 

By the college hall to the lake we go, 
Where the restless waves, surging to and fro, 
Beat in rhythmic time to each heaving breast, 
Impatient now for that perfect rest 
In claiming the one he loveth best, 
At Old Northwestern. 

Why, I see it now, the campus, wide, 
The oaks, the halls, the dancing tide, 
The tender words, the smiles — ah, me ! 
What a glorious sight for a youth to see ! 
What a glorious thing for a youth to be 
At Old Northwest 

But O, my comrade, what foolish tears ! 
Why wander alone through these gloomy years ? 
That heart you won with a college pride, 
That maid you 'trothed near the water's side 
Is waiting still to be your bride, 
At Old Northwestern 


fier Blue SbirMUaist 


Of gowns my lady has a score, 
Each time I see her there are more, 
The one of all that I adore, 
Is her hlue shirt-waist. 

With its mannish collar white, 
With its Ascot tied just right, 
Held by my Beta pin so bright, 
On her blue shirt-waist. 

She says that half I say is "gush," 
And that I like it since — but hush ! 
Still the only one that doesn't crush, 
Is her blue shirt-waist. 


H Dreamer of Dreams 


He lived apart from the busy throng, 
A weaver of fancies, a builder of song; 
But they spurned his name, and oft said it in scorn: 
'He was naught but a dreamer of dreams." 

But he dreamed his dreams on the vacant page, 
And they cheered the hearts of a cheerless age, 
And they marbeled the grave of this youth forlorn; 
"He was only a dreamer of dreams. " 


Cbe Professor's masterpiece 

Prize Parody 

By Barry Gilbert, '98. 

Have you heard of the wonderful riding machine, 
The greatest contrivance that ever was seen, 
In color, a dingy and dirty black-green ; 
Devised by an architect cunning and keen — 
As frisky and fresh as a boy in his teens — 
Fright'ning the faculty into fits, 
Scaring the students out of their wits, 
The wheel that belonged to " Bobby," I mean? 

Eighteen hundred and seventy-two, 
" Crime of seventy-three " in view ; 
Following year, they put it through. 
That was the time the "rascals were tryin' 
To knock silver out" (so says Bill Bryan); 
And General Grant, with flags a-flying, 
Was re-elected, Greeley dying. 
'Tvvas the day that Pyle invented Pearline 
That " Bobby " finished his noted machine. 

Now, speaking of safeties, I tell you what, 

There's always somewhere a weakest spot, 

In rim, tire, bearings, in spoke or frame, 

In saddles and sprockets of every name, 

In chain, valves, handlebars, much the same 

In every wheel since the safety came. 

And that's the reason, beyond a doubt, 

That a wheel breaks down and does'nt wear out. 



But " Bobby " swore (as Profs, all do), 

With just a mild Greek oath or two, 

He'd build a wheel that, by his plan, 

Would beat the best there was in the land. 

He'd have one that was " kind o' grand." 

"For," said the Prof., "it's very clear 

That I must get in society here, 

And the way to doit, as now appears, is only just 

To travel along with the ' Upper Crust.' ' 

So, in he went to a city store, 

Through the crowded streets with their busy roar, 

And bought a frame for a " V " or more. 

This he took to a blacksmith's shop, 

And changed from a diamond into a "drop." 

With nuts of iron and bolts of steel, 

He fastened the stern to an old cart wheel 

And the bow likewise to an ancient reel. 

Tires of garden-hose cut up small ; 

No one else could use it at all. 

Step and handles, spokes and brake, 

Chain of his own particular make — 

All of scrap-iron — they " took the cake." 

Saddle of sole-leather, thick and tough, 

Bag and grips of the same strong stuff. 

That was the way he put her through. 

"There," said " Bobby," " now she'll do ! " 

Do ! You bet you ! I rather guess 

She was a " corker " and nothing less ! 

Preps, grew seniors, Clark grew bald ! 

" Papa," the Prof, began to be called. 

The Dean took charge of Woman's Hall, 

But the wheel still stood on this mundane ball, 

Not a thing the matter at all. 

Eighteen-eighty ! It catne, and found 

The Prof's great masterpiece strong and sound. 

Eighteen-eighty increased by two! 

Despite its age, it still looked new. 

Eighteen hundred and ninety came — 

Ridden as usual, much the same. 

Six more years at a rapid gait ; 

Then ninety-seven and ninety-eight ! 

But the wheel is still in perfect repair — 

Except for a fracture here and there. 

The rim is just as strong as the frame, 

And the spokes are just as strong as the chain. 

And the bearings still are sound to the core, 

And the back wheel just as strong as the fore, 

And the handlebars neither less nor more. 


First wash-day in March ! Get out the Pearline ! 

Here conies " Bobby " astride of his ancient machine, 

With his back straightened up in absolute torture, 

He pedals along like a regular scorcher, 

Reading Herodotus down on the way, 

Gaining in culture along with his play, 

And all without the slightest delay, 

Winter or summer, December or May. 

This morning, however, the Prof, was vexed. 

" The word-lists' mastered," he said perplexed, 

" What, by Zeus, shall I give them next? " 

All of a sudden he felt a shock, 

As though perhaps he had struck a rock. 

Then came a crack, a crash and a knock, 

As he fell in the street in a mingled heap 

Of wheel and books and mud knee-deep. 

When the Prof, arose he began to weep, 

For there lay his pet all gone to smash, 

The handlebar bent, the rear wheel mashed. 

He couldn't have got a quarter cash 

For the mass that lay there after the crash. 

You know of course, without my say, 

That the wheel couldn't run for ever and aye. 

So, when a reduction in price was made, 

And wheels of even the highest grade 

Sold for half of what had been paid, 

The " Masterpiece," feeling its days were o'er, 

Took the shortest cut to the other shore. 

End of the wheel, like Soloman Grundy, 
"Sic Transit Gloria Mundi." 

Chen and now 

By Hei<En Arthur, 'or. 


Long ago the maidens spun 

While their lovers sat beside them 
Now along the road they hum 

On a ninetv-seven tandem. 

Long ago they hunted berries 
Along the lanes and hollows ; 

Now we play our golf together 
While a caddy follows. 

Long ago they learned to bake, 

Still I bear that time no grudges 

If " my lady " does but make 
Just the nicest "fudges." 

Long ago they both were happy, 
And the reason why, I guess, 

Was because to what he asked her 

.She just smiled and answered " yes.

Abou Joe Hunter ( may his team increase! ) 
Awoke one night when thoroughly greased 
And saw within the moonlight in his room, 
Making it rich like a Rosenbloom, 
A reporter writing in a notebook old. 
Exceeding " nerve " had made Joe Hunter bold, 
And to " the high and mighty " in the room he said: 

" Who art thou writing up?" The vision raised its head, 
And, with a look made of all reserve, 
Replied: " Those that a column or two deserve." 

"And am I one?" said Joe. " Nay, not so," 
Answered the other. Joe spoke more low, 
But cheerily still, and said: " I pray thee mention 
That I shall give football my attention." 
The reporter wrote and vanished. The next night 
He came again with loads of " coin " bright 
And showed the names of those with " writings " blessed, 
And lo! Joe Hunter's name led all the rest!

While Hunt Eliza Waited 

Best Reminiscence of College Life by a Former Student, 
Kathleen Carmen. 

TOWER clock on University Hall strikes eleven. He and she 
■ come out of the east door, descend the steps and stroll slowly off 
across the campus toward the lake, she swinging her sailor hat by 
its elastic, and he with both hands in his pockets and swinging a 
little sidewise as he walks that he may see her the better. 

She (narratively): "This is the third skip I've had in "Lit." 
this term; one more will give me a special. I wouldn't have cut 
to-day if I hadn't had a note from Aunt Eliza saying she would be 
out here this morning, and, as I am to meet her at twelve, I really 
felt the need of a little preparation, as it were. You don't know 
aunt Eliza?" 

HE: " Haven't the pleasure; but I'm awfully grateful to her for indirectly causing you 
to accept the solace of my charming society for an hour." 

She: "Oh, don't flatter yourself; you weren't on the programme at all. You are only 
an extra." 

He: " First extra, at any rate." 

She: " Don't be ridiculous. Let's sit down here on this dear little peninsula, or what- 

ever it is, and look at the lake. Isn't it beautiful this morning? Don't sit there; you can't 
see it." 

He: "Views are a matter of taste, you know. For my part I prefer this one." He 
gazes at her with a calm impertinence which she thinks best to disregard. 

She (after a pause): " What a heavenly day!" 

He: " Rather warm for the end of May, don't you think?" 

She: "Sounds like a reception or a first call, don't it?" 

He: "What? Oh, our talking about the weather. Yes, decidedly. It's a useful 
subject, but hardly necessary in our case, I should think. Whose scalp are you wearing now, 
Marjorie? That's more interesting." 

She (crushingly): " What do you mean ?" 

He: "Well, to express it more elegantly, if less forcefully, who is the most recent 
victim of your all-conquering charms and marble heart ? I saw young Wendell wrapped in a 
mantle of gloom this morning, and as " 

She ( interrupting him vehemently): "Jack, how can you talk so heartlessly? You 
know how I feel about it. He doesn't care forme a bit — like all the rest of them. It's all 
that horrid money. I wish Aunt Eliza would leave it to endow an asylum, as she once 
thought of doing." 

He (with gravity): " Surely you don't imagine that the fact of your being your aunt's 
heiress is the only charm you possess, do you, Marjorie?" 

She: " Oh, well, I am not positively ugly, and occasionally have an idea or two, but I 
am neither beautiful nor brilliant, and when I realize that fact I am naturally somewhat 
doubtful of the disinterestedness of my — friends. ' Money hath charms,' you know." 

They are both silent for a while, she gazing off at the horizon, a touch of sadness in her 
expression, and he carefully examining the lining of his hat. Presently he speaks, quietly, 
and still without looking at her. 

He: " I don't know whether or not young Wendell and those others asked you to 
marry them, but, if they did, they were cowards and not men. With perhaps one exception 
they none of them have anything to look forward to but what they make for themselves in 
whatever business they enter after leaving college, and I cannot see how any self-respecting 
man could ask a girl to share her fortune with him — when the fortune has seven figures to it, 
at any rate." 

She (looking at him and speaking with some excitement): "But, suppose the man 
should really be very clever and soon get well along in his profession; and suppose he cared 
for the girl very much, and she— do you think the money would make any difference then?" 

He: "All the difference in the world. A rich wife and a poor husband are in unnatural 
relations toward each other and toward the world. Oh, I can't argue the point, Marjorie. I 
can only give you my opinion on it. Perhaps it is only a question of pride, after all. But 
don't you think I am right?" He looked at her with a challenge in his glance that is 
promptly met. 

She: " Quite right." 

He smiles and lies back in the grass, his arms folded across his face. She looks at him 
doubtfully, the color flushing and fading in her cheek. There is a long silence. 

Below, at the foot of the cliff, the little waves run up the beach and linger down again 
with a soft, continuous murmur; overhead the new-leaved treetops, dancing to a flickering 
breeze, send back a landward echo. 

After a while she says his name softly. 

He (sitting up): " I beg your pardon, Marjorie; did you speak to me?" 

She (bringing her words out with a rush): " I just wanted to ask you if you knew tiie 
conditions under which I am to inherit Aunt Eliza's money." 

He: Conditions? "No; what are they?" 

1 68 

She (turning away her head and speaking so hurriedly that he has to lean toward her 
to understand I: " Why, only that if I marry before I am twenty-three I don't get the money. 
It goes to some charity or other; the asylum, perhaps." 

He (solemnly): " Marjorie, how old are you?" 

She (faintly): " Twenty-one last August." 

He looks at her for one breathless moment, then suddenly laughs aloud and goes down 
on one knee before her. 

He: " Marjorie, will you marry me — to-day?" 

She (coming back first to the necessities of life): "Jack, dear, we simply must «o back. 
I know it's nearly twelve and Aunt Eliza will be furious if she has to wait." 

He: " She'll be more furious still when she hears why she had to wait." He picks up 
a book from the grass and a note falls from it. 

She: " That's Aunt Eliza's note. Doesn't she write a queer hand ?" 

He (glancing at the sheet): "Rather rickety, isn't it? But look here, Marjorie, this 
says eleven — 'will meet you in the president's office at eleven.' 1 My dear girl, that elderly 

female has been awaiting your advent for the last hour. Of all the " He pauses and 

regards her with sudden suspicion; she blushes guiltily; light dawns[upon him. " Marjorie, you 
— you angel; you knew it was eleven all the while. Well, I improved the shining hour." 

They go back across the campus. In the lee of Swift Hall there is a pause and a slight 

She: "Jack, stop; how dare you? What if somebod}- should come? And Aunt Eliza 
waiting all this while! Just once, then." 

And the tower clock on University Hall strikes twelve. 

Coves Iftaytime 


Two birds upon a swinging bough, 

They nod sweet salutation; 
They wink, and sing, and love, and plan 

A soulful avocation. 

Two sparkling streams run side by side, 

They meet, dividing never; 
If she'll say " yes," then I'll love her 

Forever and forever. 


Cbe Old Clock by m Stairs 

Prize Parody 

By Ruth Colvin 

OMEWHAT back from the lake's white sands 
University Hall with its tall spire stands; 
And through its vine-wreathed doorway pass 
Both studious lad and serious lass. 
While from its station in the hall 
An ancient timepiece says to all, — 
"Don't hurry, nor worry ! 
Don't worry, nor hurry!" 

Just beneath the stairs it stands, 
And points and beckons with its hands, 
While from the glass behind the weight 
Many a girl, a trifle late, 
Catches a smile that seems to say, 
With a comforting voice as she goes her way, 
"Don't hurry, nor worry ! 
Don't worry, nor hurry!" 

Sometimes its voice is slow and composed, 
But when the classroom doors are closed, 
Distinct as a football rooter's call, 
It echoes along the vacant hall, 
Along the ceiling, along the floor, 
And seems to say at each classroom door, — 
"Don't hurry, nor worry ! 
Don't worry, nor hurry!" 

Through days of gladness and days of grieving, 
Through days of entering and days of leaving, 
Through every swift vicissitude 
Of dread "ex" time unchanged it has stood, 
As if like a "Prof." the results it knew, 
It calmly repeats those words anew, — 
"Don't hurry, nor worry ! 
Don't worry, nor hurry!" 


In that hall you still can see 
Youth, and joy, and jollity; 
The men still block up all the way, 
The girls squeeze through as best they may ; 
But, like a guardian of the peace, 
That soothing voice doth never cease,— 
"Don't hurry, nor worry ! 
Don't worry, nor hurry!" 

There groups of freshmen frightened strayed, 
There junior youth and soph'more maid. 
O precious seconds ! magic spell 
Before the recitation bell ! 
Even as a mother warns her child, 
Distinct its words, yet soft and mild, — 
"Don't hurry, nor worry ! 
Don't worry, nor hurry!" 

All will scatter soon and flee, 
Some may leave us, it may be, 
And when I ask with throbs of pain, 
"Oh! when shall they all meet again?" 
With voice that soothes my anxious cry 
The ancient timepiece makes reply, — 
"Don't hurry, nor worry ! 
Don't worry, nor hurry!" 

From that room ( by number, one ) 
On entrance day the freshmen come; 
There in the room just down the hall 
The senior's fate awaits them all; 
And standing, halting, frightened there 
They hear the old clock by the stair, — 
"Don't hurry, nor worry ! 
Don't worry, nor hum- !" 

Don't hurry now, nor worry then, 
Since some care needs must come to men, 
And when the wrinkles crease your brow, 
Don't hurry then, nor worry now. 
The old clock of the University, 
Sayeth this incessantly, — 
"Don't hurry, nor worry ! 
Don't worry, nor hurry." 

J\ Question 

We wonder and we ponder 
In the quiet of our lives, 
On what we are a doin', 
If our aims we are attainin', 
As the years go creepin' by. 

From morn to night we're thinkin' 
And then at each day's close, 
We still are found a wonderin', 
If we really are a doin', 
What will be most satisfyin' 

When the years have all crept by. 

By Otis Hard McClay, '97 

Each new year finds us all a makin' 
New vows, new resolutions, 
But who keeps these vows and who refrains 
From the things he's been a doin' 
When he knows they've not been harmin' 
I n the years that have crept by. 

And we fall asleep a ponderin', 
And we wake up still a wonderin' 
About what we are a doin', 
If our aims we are attainin', 
As the years go creepin' by.

romping child, with cheeks aglow, 

His ringlets ruffled by the breeze, 
Heedless of time, it's ebb or flow, 

It's joys, it's pains, it's miseries. 

A stalwart youth, his father's pride 
And mother's joy; his honest eyes 

Gaze only on life's brighter side, 

Nor heeds he yet it's tears and sighs. 

To manhood grown, with hope still green, 

Ambitious, proud, in quest of fame 
He plights his troth, he crowns her queen, 

He yields his heart, his hand, his name. 

In life's decline, the once proud head, 

Though streaked with gray is still held high, 

But now ambition's hopes have fled, 
The goal abandoned with a sigh. 

In second childhood's helpless grasp, 

With head bent low, eyes dimed by age, 
Awaiting death's remorseless clasp — 

'Tis but the ending of life's page ! 

Cbe fiypatica's message 

By Isabel Ross. 

'Tis April, but this frosty air's not spring's, 

And through my sluggish veins my life runs cold. 

My saddened years are few, but I am old. 
I listen, but no cheery wood-bird sings. 
Can God be careless of the chance that brings 

The changeful seasons as they come and go ? 

Is it but perchance brings human joy and woe ? 
By chance hope's fluttering banner floats or clings? 
Look! all but crushed, blooms at my stumbling feet 
First purple-tinted harbinger of spring ! 
From swaying bough out bursts in wild notes sweet 
The happy song returning robins sing. 
No, no ! our God his own can ne'er forget, 
He doth keep tryst with men and seasons yet. 


Co the Gibson man 

By Kathleen Carmen. 


GIBSON man, divinely tall 

And most divinely fair, 
Since first I fell in love with you 

I've sought you everywhere. 

At dinners, dances, matinees, 
At church, or on the street, 

Vainly I've hoped your stalwart form 
My eager gaze might meet. 

Only in magazines, alas ! 

Your many charms I see, 
Only from "Life" your handsome eyes 

Look calmly out at me. 

I so admire your stunning pose, 
The way you part your hair, 

The faultless way your trousers fit, 
And then that lordly air ! 

Oh, if you really do exist, 
I wonder where you live, 

And if the price of your regard 
Is aught that I can give ! 

And if this wail should meet your eyes- 
Since still my heart is true — 

Send me your autograph, at least, 
In care of old N. U. 


n Eenten Prayer 

By Carey Culbertson. 

EAR little maiden, demure and prim, 
Tell me, I pray, is this only a whim ? 
What miniature sin has thy heart to repent? 
Who could refuse, if thou prayed, to relent ? 

Dost thou not know that the angels above J — 
Are not more precious to me than thy love ? 
To some sweet chocolate-cream thou'rt akin; 
Brunette without — but thy soul's white within 

Dear dainty maid, I beseech thee, relent;^ 

Come back to earth ere these six weeks are spent, v?J 

Knowest thou not how alone I must roam — 

No place to go — and the club for a home? 

Didst thou refuse me at Lenten behest 

To sacrifice that which thou lovest the best ? 

Is this thy penance ? I gladly go free 

And add to thy prayer: " Amen, so let it be." 



By Helen Arthur 


If I'd give you all my kingdom 
Would you be my queen ? 

If I'd be your loyal subject 
Would you rule serene ? 

The kingdom's mine no longer 
For you took it, yea or nay, 

Though I fain would be no other 
Than I am today. 

So please accept the subject, 
And let him call you queen, 

Since I know that elsewhere 
Will no faithfuler be seen. 

If I'd lay its riches 
At your feet alone, 

Would you sit in happiness 
On my royal throne ?

Sixth Satire, Second Book (lines 7<)-"7) 
By Andrew Cooke. 

N time gone by, a rustic mouse 
Invited a friend to his country house. 
The host was blunt, and rough as well, 
The guest was polished, a city swell. 

Though neither oats, nor bacon, nor preserves were spared, 
The visitor found nothing for which he cared. 
While the head of the house, on fresh straw extended, 
Left carefully, that for the guest intended. 

The meal being over, the citizen quoth, 
"To me it's strange that you're not loath, 
To live here so quietly all your life, 
Ignorant of cities' hurry and strife. 

Since death comes surely to small and great, 
'Tis urgent that you no longer wait 
The unknown pleasures of the world to try. 
So live happy to-day, for to-morrow you die." 

The rustic, persuaded, follows his friend, 
And together their way to the city they wend. 
Having stolen at midnight 'neath the city wall, 
They at last set foot in an ivoried hall. 

There dainties, in baskets of every size, 
Remains of a feast, met their eager eyes. 
Upon crimson tapestry, the very best, 
The adroit host now serves the rustic guest. 

The latter tasting each dish, nor twice of the same, 
Reclines, feasting at ease, and is glad he came. 
Suddenly rings the house with mastiff's bark, 
Ending abruptly the pleasant lark. 

With an awful jar the folding doors shake, 
And the hearts of the mice most pitif'lly quake. 
In terrible fright they rush round the room, 
And the peasant now wishes himself at home. 

Then spake the rustic to his city friend, 
"I trust my departure will not offend, 
And, hoping to you it's all the same, 
I'll hie me home, to a life more tame. 

For a life like this I've no desire, 
But one in the country more admire. 
There in my wood, and my cave, I'll be sure, 
From surprises like this, to rest secure." 


Cbe Awkward Squad 

By H. V. Ward. 

HEY'RE not very much in the social swim, 

They don't attend Pan-Hell; 
They haven't the pile, nor yet the style, 
To ever be quite dead swell. 

But here's to the awkward squad, 
The fellows without the wad; 
At the first of the race they set no pace, 
But power's in their steady plod. 

They're a kind of heterogeneous gang, 

With a mixed and mingled garb; 
There's some of 'em rough and there's none of 'em tough, 
So they're most of 'em cut for a barb. 
Then here's to the motley throng, 
The fellows who scrape along; 
The}- don't look gay, but they've sand to stay, 
And some will finish strong". 

Their work is of multifarious kinds, 

From preaching to peddling books; 
But their way is made and their bills are paid, 
If they have to wait on cooks. 

So here's to the boy with a job; 
The fellow who can't be a snob; 
It's against the grain and a terrible strain. 
But its odds he'll distance the mob. 

They're not on colloquial terms with the profs, 

They never make much of a show; 
For a man can't grind with the fear in his mind 
That next week he may have to go. 

But hefe's to the bunch in the rear, 
The fellows who get no cheer; 
It hurts like sin, but they keep it in, 
And thev smile to cover a tear. 

Oh, the world will cheer for the men who win, 

And tell how the running was done; 
But a bit of a brace in the worst of the race 
Nerves a man for the finishing run. 
So here's to our nervy throng, 
By themselves they struggle along; 
And many who quit have just as much grit 
As those who finish strong.

Our new Ceacbers 

By G. M. 

,UR new teachers — in fact, all our teachers, even to Mr. Le Damn, 
Cela va sans dire — consented, after lengthy discussions in faculty 
meetings, to have their picture taken for the Syllabus. When 
the photographer had them all arranged and was just telling 
them to look pleasant, Professor Morse cracked a joke. That 
broke the spell — even Mr. Stecker smiled. The photographer 
had scarcely succeeded in quieting them when some one re. 
marked that all in the front row were teachers of the classics, with 
the exception of Miss Grant. " Oh, I don't know," she replied, 
" There are classics— and classics." Then silence reigned and 
the photographer seized his opportunity and touched the button. 
They are certainly an intellectual looking group, and the new teachers form no small part 
of it. Now, there is Miss Cornstock — pardon me, Miss Comstock. She and Miss Sergeant, 
both Northwestern University graduates, have been very successful in teaching us first and 
second Latin. However, of late, we have noticed that their expression is one of settled con- 
viction when the} - say: " All gall is divided into three parts." 

There is Mr. Le Daum, our French teacher from Harvard, looking as if he were going to 
squelch somebody. "How do you know he is not?" Well, in the first place, he can't 
squelch. In the second place, he wouldn't if he could. It isn't polite. 

Mr. Conner, another Northwestern University graduate, deserves special mention for the 
contented air which he has assumed thus early down among the "preps." Indeed, to put it 
in his own words he is "all things to all men." At the third year social, he's a third year; 
at the literary joint, he's an Kuphronian, and in Greek recitation, he's a dignified professor. 

Mr. Greenlaw is not so green as his name, even if he did graduate at Northwestern 
University only last year. He teaches English, and they say he is dignity personified in 
faculty meeting, but we don't believe it. These tales which they tell out of faculty meeting 
are not always to be depended upon. 

Mr. Stecker, from the University of Wisconsin, is our popular algebra instructor. It is 
not known where he smiled his first smile, but it is known where he smiled his last. Those 
wishing information will please see tabulated record avec connaissance dc cause kept by 
review algebra girls. 

Some of us new students were very much surprised to find that Mr. Jakeway, of Syracuse, 
was a new teacher. Of course the physics classes knew he was new, but he always went 
around with such a homelike expression on his face and seemed to know all the standing 
jokes (even looked expectant when Mr. Foreman got up to read the scripture in chapel) that 
we all supposed he had been here several years. There's nothing like adapting one's self 
to his surroundings. 

And Mr. Petrie: You see that prof's laughing, 

You think he's all fun, 
But his pupils laugh too (I don't think) 
At the bluffs they have sprung. 
Mr. Petrie graduated from Ann Arbor only last year and has already risen to the highest 
place of learning, or rather teaching, among the academy professors — room eleven. His mind 
is constantly upon his work and he invariably dismisses recitation by saying " Good-by, I'll 
meet you at the intersection of the meridians." 

Our new teachers are ALL RIGHT.

N May of 1890 the Y. W. C. A., which seeks to develop Christian character in 
young women, was established in the Academy of Northwestern University. 
Since then it has gained a prominent place in the hearts and minds of the most 
earnest young women of the institution, and at present has an active member- 
ship of thirty-eight. One thing that the world needs is a more thoroughly 
consecrated young womanhood, and this is one of the aims of the association — 
to lead young women to dedicate themselves to God, and to inspiring their 
brothers and sisters to nobler living. Is it not true that women are expected to 
have the truest idea of life, and if they are not earnest and religious can the 
Christian standard of the school be expected to be very high ? Certainly no 
one can doubt that the Young Women's Christian Association has a God-given 
place in college, since it seeks to lift the young women to a higher type of womanhood, and 
by lifting them it lifts the entire student body to nobler purposes and to a higher plane of life. 
A complete account of the work of the association cannot be given here but all that 
has been done, and is being done, is recorded in Heaven, and the richest blessings are being 
poured upon the efforts of the members to make the work abide and increase. 

Within the past year four representatives were sent to the Summer Conference at Lake 
Geneva, Wis., and thus the work has been strengthened because it has come in close touch 
with other associations and with the leaders of the International Association. 

An impetus has been given to the missionary work because three young 
women represented the association at the Student Volunteer Convention at 
Cleveland, Ohio, this year and came vitally in touch with the mission work 
in the different fields of the world, and learned more about the great student 
volunteer movement for foreign missions. 

The Bible classes and prayer circles are great towers of strength in the 
spiritual life of the members. Great interest is being shown in these classes 
and circles. The Sunday morning meetings are interesting and helpful, and 
the work is being carried on, "Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, 
saith the Lord of Hosts."

fl^^tf HE greater pari of the one hundred and ten yonng men who constitute the 
Y. M. C. A. have a place in the effort to fulfill the purpose of the Y. M. C. 
A., as expressed in its constitution— " to promote growth in grace and 
Christian fellowship among its members, and aggressive Christian work, 
especially by and for students; to train them for Christian service, and to 
lead them to devote their lives to Jesus Christ, not only in religious callings 
but also in secular pursuits. " By careful planning, the religious meetings 
have been made of increasing interest and worth, the leaders being chosen 
principally from the students. 

The Bible study department has been effective, about fifty men having been enrolled in 

different lines of work. Interest in this work has been maintained by earnest teachers and 

close organization of the committee, and a good foundation has been laid for future years. 

The peculiar developing force of the state convention was recognized, eleven men being 

sent by the association. 

It has been the purpose of the association to interest its members in all activities inci- 
dent to school life in which the principle of right is the ruling principle or in which it can be 
made so. Believing the Christian life to be a power which shall be felt, rather than a theory 
for learned discussion, members have been urged to turn that power to practical use in making 
strong and pure all departments of school life which have a right to claim attention, using this 
means to drive out whatever cannot make that claim.

LLINOIS is noted for its educational institutions, of which the majority is 
scattered thickly over the northern part of the state. It would be an endless 
task to take those numerous institutions of learning and explain them in detail, 
one by one. And so, to be brief, I will take up the Northwestern University, 
which is situated on Lake Michigan, just north of the city of Chicago. 

Northwestern is one of the largest and most thorough institutions of its kind 
in the great west. The class of men which you find there is not to be excelled 
anywhere in either mental or physical strength. But there is one department 
of this school which deserves the sympathy of all. Down along the lake shore 
is a dilapidated and rickety old frame building which has about reached that 
stage when it may be called ancient. And this is what is known by all as the 

There is one organization of this department which I would like to take up 
and discuss in detail. The Philomathian Literary Society is the oldest literary 
society in the academy and she has for her members men of the highest literary 
.^Vand athletic standing. 
It is needless to say anything in regard to their moral and social standing. Philo in the 
past has trained and educated men who have developed into men of much importance in both 
political and educational institutions, while those who now occupy her stately hall promise to 
follow the footsteps of their predecessors and to maintain and increase the excellent record 
established by them. Among those who are now members of Philo are : Dwigans, who is 
supposed to be the best authority on all money matters; the Lemery brothers, who never fail 
to make their point in debate; Matteson, who is unexcelled in the line of criticisms; McClin- 
ton, Barnes and Falloon, although coming all the way from Canada partly to receive the good 
which they can from Philo, can hold their own against anyone in extemporaneous debate; 
Johnston, who is reckoned as one of the best tenor singers in the academy; Winslow, who is 
of life-saving fame; Herring, who resembles so nearly Northwestern 's greatest football captain; 
Case and Trefz, who are of Fem. Sem. renown; " Touchdown " Smith, the man of lilac locks 
who once scored a lone touchdown; Campbell, who is unexcelled in writing essays; Baird, who 
is the son of a school teacher; Robinson, who is fleet of foot; and there is Miller, the man who 
plays the organ; Roloff, who is at the head of his class in Latin; Mies, who never fails to win 
his debate; King is the authority on all foreign affairs, while Kappleman can beat any man in 
his class in a bicycle race; Parkinson and Cheuveront are recognized authorities on problems 
containing x, y, z; Bahrenburg, who is "expert" in the line of photograph)-; Brown and 
Eliot, who are considered two of the best half-backs in Northwestern; Bray and Reay are 
leaders of their class in English literature; Gamer, who holds the record for fast reading; 
Professor Le Daum, who is a favorite of all; the Agnew brothers, who are never absent; Merrell 
and Groves, who are among the best students in Grecian history; Runyard, who is considered 
expert in waiting upon a table; Harnden, Hard and Wright, who are among the biggest men 
in the academy; Wolf, whose knowledge as a mechanic is something wonderful; Howe, who is 
put down as one of the best-looking men in the academy; Putnam and Cameron, whose futures 
are exceedingly bright; Wilson, who leads his class in physiology; and last, but not least, the 
great Denny P. Lemen, who promises to be one of America's greatest politicians some day. 
And now you have heard concerning them all, and no doubt you will decide that a finer crowd 
of bovs will be very hard to find.

Zebek Dorcbh J\ tragedy 

Cupbronia Literary Production 
By A. E. George. 

E\V men in the world's history have held in their hands the 

fate of nations. Others have by their influence molded the 

decisions of innumerable minds. Some have possessed a 

wonderful genius for organization. Here and there may be 

found one who held personal ends above honor and patriotism 

and became a traitor to his country. The pages of history reveal 

but one man who possessed in the highest degree all the above 

characteristics. That man is Zebek Dorchi. 

A Tartar chieftian under the mightiest of Christian thrones, 
actuated by motives of ambition and personal revenge, he conceives 
and puts into execution a gigantic scheme. This main fact, which looms up like a mountain 
peak in his thrilling career, is nothing less than the revolt of an entire Tartar nation and their 
subsequent flight from Russian vengeance across the boundless steppes of Asia to the protecting 
shadow of the great Chinese wall. Death and destruction lurked behind every step and turn 
of the undertaking. 

Nothing less than genius of the highest order could have started and kept in motion such 
a terrific storm of disastrous events. From the moment when the exodus began until the dismal 
day of its close, the terrors of hunger and cold, the bitter hostility of surrounding tribes, and 
the relentless fury of the pursuing legions all combined to crush the fleeing nation. 

At every point of critical danger the marvelous foresight of Zebek Dorchi was sufficient to 
avert complete disaster. His political ability was manifested in the preliminary steps of the 
of the revolt. His keen discernment of men was illustrated in his choice of confidants and 
leaders. The almost instantaneous inception of the flight throughout the entire realm proves 
his wonderful talent for organization. And the numberless battles and victories which dyed 
red the trail across the desert is ample evidence of his military prowess. 

Such a panorama of suffering and of horrors is greatly to be deplored, even when the cause 
of liberty or justice demands it. But when resulting from the personal hatreds and ambitions 
of one man, language fails to express the enormity of his crime ! Such misuse of power is unpar- 
alleled in human history and constitutes the most striking tragedy of ancient or modern times. 
Looking backward at the black career of this talented man, the interesting query arises: 
What might he not have accomplished if he had used his power for the highest good of his 
fellow countrymen? A careful retrospective view reveals the magnificent possibilities that 
once were within his reach. His political ability could have united the numerous Tartar tribes 
in one strong central government. Through his talent for 
organization, a powerful military system might have been 
maintained. His executive ability was amply sufficient to place 
him at the head of national affairs. 

And thus, rightly using his marvelous endowment of 
genius, Zebek Dorchi might have built up for himself a throne \ 
of Tartar dominion surpassing even the great empire of Russia 
in extent and power.

Radicalism * 

Zotalcthia titcrarv Production 

By C. S. Rodman. 

HE genius of the universe is growth and development. Radicalism is abroad, 
making little things larger, bad things good, the oest things to move toward 
perfection. It sweeps a village into a Chicago, a bleak lake shore into a 
blooming park, an old building into a stately new structure. From their 
sources things must travel far to reach perfection. Radicalism is to this 
evolution what ambition is to man ; it is' the spirit that exchanges the pony- 
express for the ligthning telegraph, the fireplace for the furnace, Franklin's 
kite-string for the ocean cable. The new always destroys the old. Of all the 
costly machines exhibited at the world's fair of 1857 not one reappeared 
in 1S93. All had been destroyed by new improvements. So vested inter- 
ests oppose the inventor, and the reformer must fight his way. Ours is a 
world where progress [is through ruin and death. Men rise upon the ashes 
of the past. In nature's transformations the butterfly rends the cocoon, but 
nature does not lament the dead husk. In man's life the new inspiration can 
be preserved only by forgetting the past. Despite all unwise protests, old ideas, old forms, old 
customs are passing away, and man is rushing with a mighty whirl toward his primeval purity. 
There is but one place where quietude and permanency are found — that is the grave. Every- 
where men are awakening from their conservatism and are basking in the light of progress. 
The watchword of thinking humanity is "Action ! Action ! Radical action ! " 

Throughout the ages conservatism has blindly opposed all novelty. Let us glance back- 
ward through nineteen hundred years of darkness, battle fields and chaos into a time when 
the world, under the blighting influences of conservatism, was retrograding toward a 
darkness equal to that when the world was drowned. Then it was that radicalism sprang 
to the rescue in the form of a natural, yet supernatural being, the acme of whose glory is 
yet to come, but which is as sure as the word of God is valid. In the youth of history we 
find the first radical drinking the fatal hemlock. Again, amid the most detestable treachery 
and corruption, a man contested for a radical idea that added a new world to the globe. 
Radicalism fled the Stigian darkness of monarchy, and established the Union ; and in '61-6, 
when the ship of state, lashed by the mad waves of civil war, was drifting upon the rocks of 
disunion, radicalism pointed out a safe harbor, the true issue, and the emancipation proclama- 
tion set the millions free. 

But, if this gigantic element has done a great work in the past, how grand is its mission 
in the present ! The battle cry of radicalism is permeating all Europe. It reverberates among 
the snow clad peaks of the Iberian peninsula, sounding the death knell of the Inquisition ; 
it seconds the roar of Vesuvius in the ear of the startled Pope, a prisoner in his own domicile ; 
at its sound the haughty Czar of all the Kussias shrinks within his bands of servile soldiery ; 
it has penetrated the Alps, where Switzerland receives it as manna to the hungry Jew. 

Over the ruins of conservative China stands the energetic Japan, the personification of 
radicalism in the nineteenth century. Cuba is breaking the last shackles that bind her to 
sinking Spain ; the grasping avarice of the British lion is staid in West and in East ; great 
canals are projected and vessels built ; railroads invade Palestine and the Sahara ; terial navi- 
gation trembles upon the verge of consummation ; a quarter of a hundred submarine cables 
flash from nation to nation the news of industry, progress and peace. While we are still far 
from, but rapidly Hearing perfection, would it be presumptuous to hope that ere the close of 
the next century, through the promulgation of all the sublime forces of radicalism, invention, 
free schools, republicanism, progress and religion, we shall be measurably nearer that prophetic 
period, the universal brotherhood of man and the universal fatherhood of God?

•• EPS?.. I *fe 


LL Illinae is divided into three parts, of which one part is called the 
"Bonse," another the "Meliores" and the third, which in their own 
language are called the "Ambitious," in ours the "Optimse." All 
these, in their use of language and parliamentary rules, differ from 
each other. 

Of all these, the most highly developed are the "Optimse," 
because, from "blufling" and "flunking" they are the farthest away 
and least often by them are the programme committees repulsed. 
Nearest they are to the "profs " who in almost impenetrable clouds 
of dignity dwell, and to whom they daily resort in order that they 
may relieve their over-taxed brains. 

The "Meliores" surpass the remaining Illinium physical strength, 
because, by means of their military skill and almost daily exercise at 
the "gym," they are able to keep out from their boundaries the most 
powerful ambassadors. 

The "Bonn.'," who are called the third part, sometimes bring in 

those things which tend to weaken the mind. They put to flight the 

programme committees and rebuke the treasurer for asking their absence 

fees. Nevertheless, by the influence of weekly sessions the}' are persuaded 

•" to give up those characteristics and are soon numbered among the 

"Meliores," and finally among the "Optimse." 

The Illicit' take their rise from the bottom of innumerable steps that slope 
toward the stars and the rising moon. For this reason, less widely they wander 
and less easily ambassadors are able to come to them. For this reason, mem- 
bers fond of the ground floor with great grief and loss of breath are affected. 
Nevertheless, in proportion to their number and in proportion to their age and 
experience, although their boundaries are high and narrow, yet in the glory of debate and 
or„iorv, as well as in situation and name, they are all "Optimse." 
Their motto is: "Room at the top."

Bv Katherine O'Conner. 

HILE sitting in my cottage room. 
As the clock is striking the hour, 
And the mcon rises o'er the lake, 
Behind our college tower, 

As the beautiful moonlight 
Silvers the room around me, 
I dream of past days in "prepdom," 
Before paying college fee. 

I gaze away in the distance 
Of this lovely night in May, 

And think of "times" at Illinae, 
Before prep commencement day. 

Near by the college cottage 

The noted "fern, sem." doth lie, 

And the room that they gave to Illinae — 
Well, it almost touches the sky. 

But we girls would climb the steep stairways 

On every Friday night, 
Then would listen to fine programmes, 

Which ne'er could but delight. 

And like the rush at chapel 

Along the narrow aisles, 
A flood of thoughts come o'er me 

That drive away college trials. 

How often, oh, how often, 

In the days that have gone by, 
I had wished, as I climbed the stairways, 

An elevator was nigh. 

How often, oh, how often, 

On the programmes my name was placed 
For essays, debates and other things, 
Which now can never be traced. 

For when I first joined Illime 
To debate made life seem drear, 

And when I stood on the platform, 
At first I shook with great fear. 

But soon that great fear fell from me, 

It lies buried in the past, 
For oh, the training of Illinae 

Is something that e'er will last. 

My thoughts are turned also to Caxton 
And the prize which Grace has won, 

The "Circuit News," which was edited, 
And Dr. Fisk's words, "well done." 

I think how ambassadors from 

Societies of men, 
Each bearing a message or greeting, 

Ne'er gained admission then. 

The cruel regulations 

The boys thought were not right; 
They could not hear our programmes 

On a single Friday night. 

So, gliding over life's river, 

After college days are past, 
I'll think how "Baby Illinae" 

Has grown so very fast. 

For as the star of life in "prepdom" 
"Illinae" will e'er appear, 

A developer of girls' talents, 

And making their future so clear.

Cbe fatal Step 

By M. J. Seed. 

OMETIME you will be happy, but you are about to take a fatal step." 

The speaker, a swartby-faced woman, has long before lost all those fem- 
inine graces which command the admiration of man. Her face is wrinkled 
with age, and the mass of unkempt hair hangs down her shoulders. As 
she sits atone end of the tent on a bundle of bed-clothes, there is some- 
thing weird in her appearance. A pair of piercing black eyes, which 
glare out of their sunken depths, has a peculiar fascination for the girl 
at her side. By degrees her listener has become roused to a high pitch 
of excitement, and, as the concluding sentence is uttered, an indefinable 
dread takes possession of the girl. 

Now, with a sigh of relief the visitor rises to depart. Thinking of the 
ominous warning of the gypsy she hurries along, glad to get away from 
the camp which at first she thought so attractive. 

Presently, as the sun is setting, she arrives at the place known as 
Here she pauses, and for a moment the cloud disappears from her face as 
she recalls the words spoken here just a week before. She looks again at the engagement ring 
in order to make sure that she is not dreaming, but the sight of the jewel serves only to 
associate the coming marriage with the gypsy's words: " You are about to take somefatal step." 
Can it be true ? The thought is unbearable ! How can she now give up her cherished 
hopes ? But in her excited state she can think of no other meaning, so by the time she arrives 
at home she decides to heed the warning. 

The house which she is approaching was built for a creamery. The basement is used for 
the manufacture of butter and cheese, while the main floor is occupied by the family. Along 
the entire front of the building is a porch on which open three doors. At the second of these 
the milk is received and conducted to the basement. For convenience, then, the floor from off 
this door was not laid. 

As she is about to enter the gate she hears a familiar step, and, turning around, sees the one 
who has been occupying so large a share of her thoughts. The moon has now arisen, and as 
they walk along the quiet country road the girl would gladly drive from her memory that scene 
in the tent, but she cannot. Her companion wonders at her abstraction, and she tells him of 
her visit that afternoon to the gypsy camp. In vain he tries to dissuade her from what he 
terms her folly. Then, when he finds his words have no effect, he calls it a fit of obstinacy, 
and reproaches her for her faithlessness. This touches her feminine nature and, as additional 
words lead only to misunderstandings, they soon relapse into silence. 

Finally the unhappy pair reach home. Neither conjecture that the gypsy's prophecy will 
so soon be fulfilled. In their absorption they walk past the first door, and then bidding 
goodby in a constrained manner, he turns away, perhaps for the last time. 

Suddenly his steps are arrested by the screams of a girl, followed almost instantly by a 
splash like that of a body striking the water. Thoughts of what this strange occurrence 
means rush wildly through his mind. Perhaps she has stepped on a secret spring, and, falling 
to some underground stream, is even now being borne to her death ! However, forgetting now 
his disappointment and having no regard for his own safety, he leaps down into the darkness. 
To his relief he finds his footing, and hearing a gurgling sound to his left, he plunges in that 
direction and is overjoyed to find her unhurt. 

Lights are now brought and the pair realize their situation. She had only stepped into a 
large vat of buttermilk. 

J\ Scene from a "novel" 

(With apologies to W. E. McLennan.) 
By J. G. Chambers. 

T was night; and all was still, save for a hurrying, scurrying sound of footsteps, ever 
drawing nearer to the brink of a precipice that overhung the sea. The foremost figure 
was that of a man running for his life. Two dusky forms, with glittering knives in their 
teeth and paper collars around their ankles, followed swiftly, brandishing spears. 
Suddenly Percival stopped short in his flight, and drawing a roll of manuscript from his 
breast, cried, in a horseradish voice: "Halt!" But the savages came slowly on. 
Percival' unrolled the manuscript in the moonlight, and read: "Spring, beautiful 

Spring " but no sooner had the first words fallen from his lips, than the native in 

advance dropped dead in his tracks, and the other barely had strength enough to crawl 
away. Percival gazed at them with a smile, and gurgled: " I've had my r-r-revenge!" 
He replaced the manuscript in his pocket, and turned to go, when a writhing shape hurled 
itself upon him through the ambient atmosphere. It was a boa-constrictor! Horrors! Could 
he not save himself? He felt that fully one-half of his body was hanging in mid-air, over the 
cliff, when suddenly a thought struck him and threw him back from the edge of the abyss. 
But the immense serpent had a " pull," and, throwing his tail around a projecting slice of 
stratum, he slowly pulled Percival back over the precipice. The young man's strength was 
slowly ebbing from his sleeves, but he struggled desperately. He gazed far beneath him, 
where he could see the sea leaping hungrily upward. Merciful heavens! He caught a glimmer 
of saw-like teeth far below. It was a shark waiting to snatch him under should he fall. 
He could not hold on much longer. The snake had coiled itself partly around the lower part 
of his body, and he held its head tightly between his knees, bnt it was slowly working loose. 
He thought of climbing back over the brink, but — ye gods! — as if in answer to his thought, 
he caught the fiery gleam of a panther's eyes! His breath came in short trousers! He was 
now confronted by three dangers, but the most pressing was the snake coils, so he decided to 
dispose of that first. (He had been hanging by his finger nails all this time.) The snake had 
almost freed itself — he must act instantly, if not sooner. He twisted around, and, by great 
exertion, got the reptile between him and the rock. Then, freeing one foot, he drove home, 
and stabbed it to the backbone with the toe of his pointed patent-leather shoe! 

Casting the snake into the sea, Percival felt that a great weight had been lifted from him, 
and drawing his silk handkerchief from his pocket and wiping the cold perspiration from his 
feverish brow, he murmured in a husky voice with yellow rings around it: "That's the time 
the pointed toe saved a life. But if my feet had been like those of Chicagoans!" Horrors! 

The panther had crept stealthily up, determined to force Percival's hand. His hold was 
slipping; the panther was preparing to leap upon him, and the only thing to do was to drop. 

While falling through the air, Percival thought of the shark below, but there was no help 
for him now; he must take his chances. He struck the water with a thud, sending spray in all 
directions. When he came to the surface he looked around. The shark was floating belly 
upward, with the snake's tail protruding from its mouth. The watery monster had choked to 
death. Percival was now so tired that he could swim no longer, so he grasped the shark's 
body and used it as a buoy, until they drifted ashore. Carrying the shark's carcass and the 
snake. Percival crept up to the top of the cliff, deposited his burden on the ground, and, draw- 
ing his trusty penknife, he crawled behind the panther, and killed the carnivorous quadruped 
with one blow! He then skinned the panther and the shark, and, using the serpent as a rope 
he tied the serpent's skin over the flexible bones of the shark, and, on the flying machine thus 
constructed, flew home to his beloved, who had watched all from her window with a telescope. 

Reflections of a fourth year 

Tourth=Vcar Class Production. 
By F. E. Owen. 

FOURTH YEAR sat at his window, 

And thought of the days that were past; 
And he took up his pencil and paper, 
As his thoughts into this form were cast. 

I've traveled all " Prepdotn" over, 
And now to the college I'll go, 

For I know they will gladly receive me, 
When the) - find out how much I know. 

I've toiled from Caesar through Virgil, 
And finished the two years of Greek ; 

At Geometry, Physics and German, 
I likewise have taken a peep. 

I have no fear of Clark's English, 

It will be but a mere bagatelle ; 
For when under Miss Grant's careful guidance 

I studied this subject quite well. 

I've written my fourth-year essays, 
And read them to wise Doctor Fisk ; 

And again, as I think of Clark's English, 
I'm sure that I'm running no risk. 

The moral side of my nature 

Has here been most carefully trained ; 

I've been shown ever}' Friday in chapel 
The goal that by me must be gained. 

There first I heard of tobacco, 

And the sin of using the weed ; 
And away from this habit the Doctor 

Endeavored my foot-steps to lead. 

The social side of my nature 

Would also have been up to-date, 

Had it not been for strict regulations 
Forbidding my staying up late. 

Most foolish, fond regulation 

That stops at eleven o'clock, 
All the socials ; and justly at thee, do 

The fun-loving students all mock. 

Ah well, I have passed all my ex's, 
To-night is the commencement eve, 

I shall then with my heart beating highly, 
My sheepskin with honor receive. 

Oh "Prepdom," farewell then forever, 

Though "New Prep" I'd like to have seen; 

Yet "Old Prep," in the hearts of thy children 
Thy mem'ry shall ever be green ! 


Cbc Royal Road 

third-year Class Production. 
By.G. S. Wilcox. 

OVV dear to my heart are the trees on the campus ! 

Their frost-covered branches outlined on the sky; 
'The bleak, ice-bound strand by the lake in the winter, 

With waves dashing skyward in foam-crests so high. 

In springtime, when robins are dulcetly warbling, 
And perfume of violets enladens the air, 

The view down the vistas of sweet-smelling branches 
Ennobles the soul and alleviates care. 

Callow youth, in the heyday that's gliding so swiftly, 
Let gaining of knowledge and lore be thy creed. 

With thy prospects and hopes, in this Garden of Eden 
The roadway to learning is royal, indeed. 


that "€x." 

By Mary F. Wright. 


HE "ex" is long, and hard, and dreary; 
Time flies, and I am more than weary; 
My pen still travels the uncheering page, 
And at every word I am filled with rage, 
7\ And the " ex " is hard and dreary. 

To wait so long is hard and dreary; 
Time drags, and I grow very weary; 
My mind still travels the uncheering way, 
And my hopes of passing are less each day, 
For the " ex " was hard and dreary. 

Be still, sad heart ! and cease repining; 
The " flunker's ex " thou still may shine in; 
Thy fate is the common fate of all : 
Into each heart some fear must fall, 
Some "ex " must be hard and dreary. 



n Parody 
By George Bahrenburg. 

HARDLY think that I exaggerate when I say, that never since the founding of the 
academy has there been found a man better fitted for a great work than Kester. You 
may say that I am partial to my schoolmate, but Rob Wilson, of the senior class, who 
hated a prep almost as much as he did an oratory student, when he visited Euphronia, 
and heard Kester, the dignified senior, opened wide his mouth and exclaimed: "This 
is the man, those are the hands, the most proficient that teach penmanship to-day," 
and I think he knew what he was talking about. 

Owen could lead the singing in chapel; Rodman could make a mash on any girl; Swift 
could "work" Prof. Morse; Arthur Brown could hold Friday chapel spell bound with his 
oratory, and Panhorst could get a stand in with any of his teachers, but no one of these men 
could do more than that one thing. The wonder about Kester was that he could write better 
than Smiley; he could sway a prayer-meeting better than Gurney, and leave Professor Wilde 
far behind in a bicycle race. 

It has been my privilege to have heard all the great preps who have become singularly 
famed at and near their boarding houses. I know what was the athletic ability of Cater; I 
know what it is to be approached by my laundryman; I have seen eloquence in the brass 
logic of Frye, but all three of these men never surpassed, and no one of them ever equaled 
the great penmanship professor. 

Whenlwasin Joliet I asked "Touchdown" Smith, " Is Herbert Kester a good prep?" 
"As good a prep as ever took first Latin," said he, and then he told me the following story : 
"When, in 1873, Kester first entered the academy, the athletic association was so weak that it 
had only Agnew and myself to speak for it, and we agreed that when I spoke he should cheer 
me, and when he spoke I should cheer him, and these were the only cheers we ever got." 

One clay a large delegation of " frat" men (I think Hard said twenty-nine), who repre- 
sented Sigma Chi, Phi Kappa Sigma, and Beta Theta Pi, went 
to him and said, "Kester, at last you are about to graduate 
from prep — if you will never go to the four-mile limit again 
with Dwigans and Case, we will give you the choice of join- 
ing either one of these "frats." But if you work with those 
"bibs," count us always against you." 

It was a terrible temptation. How many a so-called prep 
would have yielded ! Kester said, Dr. Rogers knows I speak 
for the brightest students in the whole university; but may 
my right hand forget its penmanship and my tongue cleave to 
the floor of my mouth, if but to desert the poor first years — even 
the second years, if I forget first Latin one single hour. 


And then beside his irreproachable character, he had what is half the power of a pop- 
ular prep — he had a majestic presence. In youth he had the brow of a Hercules, and the stature 
of a Seed. A little Kester would have been no Kester at all. You remember the story Dr. 
Fisk tells us at Friday chapel, about Matteson, when he in the academy was trying to break 
up joint socials among the literary societies. Kester came to Friday chapel to protest, and 
five hundred preps came out to meet him. He lifted up his majestic presence before that sea 
of human faces, his brow charged with thunder and said: "Ladies and gentlemen: I am a 
prep; a first-year prep; a Euphronian prep; a religious prep; a Northwestern prep; and if you 

do away with the joint sessions where shall we go to have a good 
time?" And, says Snyder, " We all held our breath, thinking 
where he could go." But, if Dr. Fisk had not been around, we 
would probably have said, "confound you, go to the Female 
Seminary or the Cottage for your good times." Well, Kester had 
all that, and then he had what Hamilton never had, and what 
Dickey had, the magnetism and grace of conducting a "Syllabus" 

It would have been a pleasure even to look at him if he 
had not spoken at all, and all you thought of was a green-hound. 
And then he had, what so few prep speakers have, a voice that 
sounded the gamut. I heard him once in Heck Hall say, "Preps, I send my voice careering 
like a threshing-machine across the campus, to tell my fellow men that X Y Z equals X Y Z 
and to remind the college senior that he need not think he owns a whole stock ranch when 
he gets a sheepskin." And I seemed to hear his voice reverberating and re-echoing back 
to the campus from the cottage, and then, with the slightest possible flavor of a first year prep, 
he would tell a story that would make all Friday Chapel laugh, and the next moment there 
were tears in his voice, like an old song, and five-hundred preps would be in tears. And all 
the while no effort— he seemed only breathing. 


Che Battle: Jin Allegory 

By G. S. Wilcox. 

AST night I dreamed a wonderful dream! I found myself, of a sudden, in 
that weird land which is so fantastically evoked by tliat sub-conscious 
state of wakefulness in slumber. I was journeying through a wilderness, 
and was plodding steadily forward, recking neither of the stones in my 
path, nor of the thorns at my side; for I was determination. Pausing, at 
length, to take breath, I became suddenly aware that a vast concourse of 
beings, fearful, though familiar, was bearing down to crush and overwhelm 
me. For a moment I was filled with apprehension and dismay; then, seizing 
my trusty sword, Intellect, in both hands, I placed my back against a rock, 
and stood, with tightened girth and defiant mein, awaiting the advancing host. 
The}- approached with a steady and dignified tread, which tallied well witli 
their imposing appearance. As they drew nearer, I could see that they formed 
a well-ordered army, divided into three wings; and imagine my surprise and 
consternation when I discovered that they were commanded by my old enemies 
Leonidas Cresar and Vercingetorix! In the front ranks the fighting men were 
all intimate acquaintances, and seemed the more formidable on that account, as I thought 
that they knew my most vulnerable spots. Among these I noticed " Adverbial Accusative " in 
particular, leering at me with its ugly face, and driving me mad with vexation. To the rear, 
the faces, while less familiar, looked even more sinister. They were armed for the most part 
with long pikes (which looked suspiciously like dissecting needles), although some carried 
sharp-pointed triangles, or heavy steel cones. But that which struck terror deepest into my 
heart was the sable banner floating on the breeze, bearing, beneath a death's-head, the inscrip- 
tion: "Oratio Obliqua!" 

We fought hard and fiercely, hour after hour, and many a brave soul bit the dust and gave 
of his life-blood to quench the thirst of my faithful weapon; but at last my breath came in 
shorter and shorter gasps, and the bloody sweat oozed from my brow, for my strength was 
failing me and I felt that I must die. Just as I was about to suffer the degradation of utter 
defeat, I became conscious of the presence of a beautiful girl standing at my side, and urging 
me on to renewed effort. She told me that the world called her "Inspiration." Thereupon, 
grasping my sword more firmly, I made a final rush at my enemies, struck their banner to the 
earth, and scattered them like chaff before the wind. Then a great light opened before me 
and I saw we two, as in a panorama, strolling placidly, hand in hand, down the long avenue 
of life to where success and happiness waited with open arms to receive us.

U2 to 118 FIFTH AVENUE. 

Nothing gives such zest to a meal as a well-founded consciousness that every- 
thing entering into it has been prepared with absolute cleanliness. Cleanli- 
ness has always been classed among the virtues, but a clean restaurant deserves 
a special distinction. King's Restaurant, 112 to 118 Fifth Avenue, is scrupulously 
clean from end to end. This assertion can readily be substantiated, as an 
inspection is welcome at all times. The recent overhauling to which King's 
Restaurant has been subjected makes it one of the brightest and most attractive 
places in the city. It has been thoroughly renovated and refurnished through- 
out at a cash outlay of several thousand dollars, but the result justifies the 
expenditures. Considering the moderate prices prevailing at this house, the 
cuisine is above criticism. King's Restaurant is open all night, and possesses 
special accommodations for ladies. As an after-the-theater resort it is deservedly 
popular. For this purpose no restaurant in the city is so conveniently situated 
when the transportation facilities for different parts of the city are taken into con- 
sideration. It is situated "on the loop" and within half a block of an elevated 
station. Surface roads for all parts of the city are easy of access. For a 
noon-day lunch or refreshments after the theater King's Restaurant offers 
exceptional advantages. CHAS. W. KINC.
